Sapa (Cooked Grape Must Sauce) by SiGi
Sapa is also called "cooked grape must." The grape must is simmered in a copper pot for 24-36 hours. When it has reduced to one third of its original quantity it is ready. The high sugar content acts as a preservative. The Sapa is a dense sweet caramel sauce with a tart aftertaste that is traditionally paired with polenta and goats cheese. It is also excellent with strawberries, and as a sauce for ice cream. In the summer it makes a delicious thirst quencher, diluted with water. In ancient times it was mixed with snow to create granita.

SiGi was founded in 1996 by Silvano Buccolini and his wife Giuliana Papa in the Marche region of Italy. The company marries Silvano’s passion for saving ancient local fruit varieties with Giuliana’s extensive knowledge of traditional Marche recipes to produce specialities such as Sapa, Sour Cherries under the Sun, White Fig Jam and Mulberry jam. Their commitment to traditional Marche fruits and preserves bring the flavors, aromas and colors of the past into the present.
